TTIP

Post by GaryT » Sun Oct 11, 2015 10:26 am

Did a quick search on here for previous discussions about the TTIP agreement but surprisingly came up blank. Here's what the Germans have done to protest about it, any such mega demos planned for the UK? I know 38 degrees are on the case but it needs to go more mainstream before the majority of Brits can be wrenched from their armchairs.

We have definitely discussed it before though where and when I can't remember.

There are many campaigning agencies agitating against TTIP and John Hilary from War on Want is one of the best commentators on this issue

Governments being sued if they don't allow corporations easy access to their markets, we might as well pack up and go home now while we can.

If George Orwell was alive, he'd be turning in his grave.

Power to the people.

Without the internet we would never have known about this agreement. If this agreement fails expect to see bigger and more stringent controls brought in to control the internet. 'They' can't allow us to have a say in things that matter (to them).

Well done to Greenpeace, it's organisations like this that need our support if we are to survive the all consuming needs of corporate greed.

The French are kicking off too. President Hollande says he won't sign.
